Our patients can access specialized clinics that are our doctors oversee. Clinics include orthotic, spasticity, amputee and high risk limb assessment, as well as paediatric spinal deformity and neuromuscular.
Paediatric Spinal Clinic
A Spinal Clinic is held once a month at Queen Alexandra. Specialists (orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists, clinic nurses, and/or orthotists) are in attendance at each clinic. Patients from all over Vancouver Island are welcome.

Paediatric Neuromuscular Clinic
A Neuromuscular Clinic is held usually once a month at Queen Alexandra. Either one or two orthopaedic surgeons, one or two orthotists, the clinic physiotherapist, and the client's physiotherapist are in attendance at each clinic.

Our physiatry clinics consist of a physiatrist and a certified orthotist or certified pedorthist. The clinics focus on ongoing rehabilitative conditions such as diabetes, plantar fasciitis, Charcot- Marie-Tooth Disease, and other conditions.
The physician can review concerns with you and call in a clinician to assist in determining the proper bracing or foot orthotic for the related assessment. An immediate referral can be made if the doctor writes a prescription for a device.
Collaborative Spasticity Program
The Collaborative Spasticity Program (CSP) is a unique multidisciplinary and multimodal program (comprised of orthotists, physician specialists in Rehabilitation Medicine, and physiotherapists) who meet to set and address realistic functional goals for patients with spasticity.
